Winter Squash, JUMBO Pink Banana HEIRLOOM,Open Pollinated, !
100 days. Very smooth, velvety skin makes Pink Banana an attractive conversation piece as well as a delicious dish! American pioneers ate many a hearty meal with this 18" - 24" long squash. Not only a vegetable side dish, but luscious in pies and baked goods, and an excellent canning candidate. Long vines up to 15'.
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures have risen above 60Â°F.
When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short season climates, 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in individual pulp pots that can be planted directly in the ground.
Harvesting: Harvest just before the first fall frost, (do not leave in the garden when temperatures drop below 33Â°F) when the squashâs rind is hard enough that you canât dent it with your fingernail. Cut, (donât break the stems off) leaving 2" of stem attached. If stem attachment is broken, the squash will rot in a few weeks. Though fruits are hard and may seem indestructible, treat them gently; a bruised squash spoils quickly.
